Date : 8th April 2017

Finishing the CECRI meet and visit to kandavarayanpatti school, I spend the whole night in CECRI Guest House. In the morning by 5 took a train Pandian Express from Karaikudi reached Trichy by 6.30.A.M. in the morning finished my Breakfast, moved on to Trichy Bus Terminus, from there took a bus from Trichy to Thozhuthur, which is located on the paths towards Chennai. I reached there around 10 o’clock, from there I took a bus to Aaduthurai, in a walkable distance, I reached the Library.

I was welcomed by Mrs. Ezhil, who was the Library Keeper. It was an exact place for Library reading, the place was filled with silence. I went a walk through the Library and then enquired about the Computer provision. She took me to the Computer Room. The Computer was assisted by RASBERRY EduBox provided by Vetrivel Foundation.

Now the aim of the visit is to forward the Khan Academy Tamil Videos to the library due to lack of Internet Provision, they were unable to access the videos. So Vetrivel Foundation decided to offer a Flash Drive filled with Khan Academy Tamil Videos. So I offered the Flash Drive on behalf of Vetrivel Foundation handed over to Mrs.Ezhil.

I also checked on the computer for the correctness of the files. It worked very well on the desktop. I then enquired about the students periodic visit to the library. She said children often visit to library for studying books and also for viewing the videos.

She also said that she will take the Flash Drive to the nearby Aaduthurai school for showing of the videos.I then requested Mrs. Ezhil madam to periodically update about the students visit to library. With that note the visit was fulfilled and I left the library and reached Chennai on 9th of April.
